The Department of Finance Canada has now issued guidelines outlining a process to apply for surtax exemptions on goods from the U.S.
A remission will allow for relief from the payment of surtaxes, or the refund of surtaxes already paid under certain conditions.
The Government will accept applications for the remission of surtaxes for the following reasons:
To address situations of short supply in the domestic market Where contractual requirements existed prior to May 31, 2018 for Canadian businesses to use U.S. steel or aluminum To address on an individual basis other circumstances
Only companies registered in Canada are eligible to make requests for remission of the surtaxes imposed as of July 1, 2018.
Surtax Remission Application Services are available through Cole Consulting
